• General Information
    • A list of participating churches is available in the Paper Resources section
    • Gift Aid: the money raised (before GiftAid) will be shared equally between OHCT and the church of your choice. Please encourage your sponsors to GiftAid their donations if they are UK taxpayers. If you are using the sponsorship form please ensure all the following details are provided as these are needed in order to claim the GiftAid tax rebate: full name (individual only, not Smith family or R & D Smith), home address (including house name or number) and postcode. A work address is not acceptable.
    • Any tax reclaimed is paid specifically to OHCT so cannot be passed back to churches. The cost of running the St/Ride, including JustGiving charges, is covered by the tax rebate, so that all OHCT’s share of sponsor money can be used for grants.
    • Please take photographs and e-mail them to [email protected] with details of who is in the photograph and where it was taken. Please let us know if we are able to use the images for marketing purposes.
